The Hornets were hoping Xavier Henry's D-League stint would make him more aggressive offensively, seeking to attack the defense off the dribble.

“Playing with those guys made me realize that, OK, I’ve just got to be aggressive,’’ Henry said. “When I came back, I wanted to be confident so I could really show my game instead of sitting back and letting the game come to me. I just had to go out there and push the issue.’’

Henry has scored more than 10 points in his past two games, the first time accomplishing the feat this season.
